The tenor ukulele is just a little bigger than the concert ukulele. The tenor ukulele is usually around 26 inches long, and has only 17-19 scale length depending on model. Tenor ukuleles are commonly tuned in standard re-entrant G-C-E-A, but some will choose to tune it lower like a baritone ukulele to D-G-B-E.
Tenor ukuleles are becoming more and more popular as people get used to the less-traditional sound. The Tenor is also popular for performances, because of the tonal qualities and the capabilities to reach higher notes on the fret board. However it is used more often in acoustic sessions and recording. Their larger scale makes them an easier adaptation for guitar players, and their large bodies produce warmer, more complex tones that are desirable for any genre of music.
